Roman Pottery

Today we have been learning how to join two pieces of clay together using water.  Some of the children asked what you call this so ...

What is clay mixed with water called? ... CLAY SLIP: Slip is made by mixing clay with water. Slip is a fine, liquid form of clay used with scoring to cement together parts that have been formed separately.

We have been working hard looking at many Roman designs and styles of pottery.  

Once we had the initial shape in mind, we moulded, joined and scratched the clay to make these wonderful pieces of pottery.
